As you might imagine, this post is very NSFW.
Now entering the post-“Transformers” portion of his career, Shia LaBeouf is trying to establish himself as a serious actor. We’ll see part of this new LeBeouf when John Hillcoat’s “Lawless” opens in August, but the latest and more naked part of that campaign debuted online today.
LaBeouf stars in the latest music video from the Icelandic post-rock group, Sigur Rós, for their song, “Fjögur Píanó,” and he is very, very naked.
But incidentally, the nudity is not what has us scratching our heads. It’s everything else in the video.
Check out the full video after the jump.
We watched all eight minutes and 32 seconds of this music video from start to finish, and from what we can tell, this kind of looks like a parody of high art. There are a few factor that have led us to this conclusion, something we hope is true.
First of all, the nudity. Let’s talk about the nudity. LaBeouf is fully nude in one shot early on in the video. He stands completely naked facing his co-star, who spends most of the video equally undressed. LeBeouf ponies up and goes full-frontal, but not for nearly as long as his female co-star. Being a serious actor is about nudity, not necessarily extended nudity.
After LaBeouf and his co-star wake up, they get naked and after are attacked by hipsters bearing sparkly lollipops. We rest our case.
